Washington State’s non-profit wholesale broadband and telecommunications solutions provider

Northwest Open Access Network (NoaNet) is a not-for-profit wholesale telecommunications mutual corporation that has been serving Washington State since 2000. As a mission-driven organization, NoaNet focuses on bringing world-class telecommunications technology to hard-to-reach communities which lack access to high-speed affordable broadband services.

Many of our staff live and work in rural Washington, so this work is personal to us. Quality and affordable broadband access for all Washington communities is necessary to thrive in today’s digital age.  Lacking sufficient bandwidth or broadband limits educational opportunities and information exchange and discourages businesses to relocate or expand. NoaNet addresses these issues through effective engineering and deployment of broadband networks and technology services to communities, government entities, businesses, ports and tribal communities.

With robust fiber-optic infrastructure in place, together we can help save lives, reduce government costs, increase access to education and create business opportunities for generations to come.

We look forward to the opportunity to work with you to help bring world-class broadband technologies and services to your community.
